Former Staten Island men’s basketball standout Frank Schettino has inked a professional contract with Panteras De Aguascalientes, a professional team in Mexico.

Schettino wrapped up his collegiate career with an undefeated conference record which led to a CUNYAC title and his first trip to the NCAA Division III tournament.  Schettino also shatter records along the way. He finally broke the single game assist record, after tying it four times before, in a game against Medgar Evers where he collected 17 in that game. 

When asked how it felt to sign the new contract Schettino said “It was an amazing feeling writing my name on that line.  This has been a dream of mine since freshman year of college when I really believed that I can play professionally. To say that I play basketball professionally is truly an honor.”

Schettino led all divisions with five triple-doubles enroute to CUNYAC and ECAC Metro NY/NJ Player of the Year.  Schettino dazzled on the court this season and picked up many more awards which included splitting the Division III Player of the Year honors with Ramapo College’s Thomas Bonacum. He finished his career with 1,612 points (8th all-time), 826 assists (1st) and 222 steals (1st).  Schettino also holds the record for the most points in a single game with 43, which he did twice.

Schettino was a four-time CUNYAC All-Star and will take his talents south of border to Mexico.
